Jerry Mechling, Lecturer in Public Policy, Kennedy School of Government; Faculty Chair: Leadership for a Networked World Program on "Leadership for a Networked World: The Priorities Now."
Information technologies have been key factors -- and not always positive -- behind governmental productivity, equity, and legitimacy, i.e., some of the most important things that public leaders are held accountable for. But how are leaders responding? What have they done so far to adapt to a networked world? What's different now, and what are their priorities for the future? This talk provides a framework for analyzing and answering these questions.
